1. 1. Mapping SpaceMapping Space and Timeand Time Topic – Physics on the RoadTopic – Physics on the Road Lesson 1Lesson 1
2. 2. LEARNINGLEARNING INTENTIONS…INTENTIONS…  Know that speed is distance divided byKnow that speed is distance divided by time; v = s/ttime; v = s/t  That speed can be calculated from aThat speed can be calculated from a distance-time graph.distance-time graph.  The meaning of average andThe meaning of average and instantaneous speed and how these areinstantaneous speed and how these are calculated from distance - time graphs.calculated from distance - time graphs.

If 0.375 s passes between the time you see him strike the ball and the time you hearsee him strike the ball and the time you hear the sound of this, how far from the batsmanthe sound of this, how far from the batsman are you sitting? The speed of sound in air isare you sitting? The speed of sound in air is 340 ms340 ms–1–1 .. 2.2. A girl diving from a 15 m platform wishes toA girl diving from a 15 m platform wishes to know how fast she enters the water. She is inknow how fast she enters the water. She is in the air for 1.75 s and dives from rest (with anthe air for 1.75 s and dives from rest (with an initial speed of zero). What can you tell herinitial speed of zero). What can you tell her about her entry speed?about her entry speed?
